How do I get access to initiatives such as Bike Ed, ActivePaths and MIND.BODY.PEDAL?

In order to ensure that school’s get the most out of our initiatives, we want to make sure that they’re the right ones for your school. To do this, Ride2School offers a tailored approach where we match initiatives based on your school’s specific barriers. We also require a commitment from your school to the Ride2School program and promoting active travel through the regular collection of HandsUp! counts.

If you want to get involved in the Ride2School program and find out what initiatives would help your school’s barriers, please get in touch at ride2school@bicyclenetwork.com.au

I am a parent, how do I get involved in the Ride2School program?

The Ride2School program is designed to work with whole school communities to increase active travel, rather than individual families. If you and your children would like to get involved, please contact your school to find out how you can support them in encouraging active travel. Even if your school is not involved with the Ride2School program, we still encourage you and your children to actively travel every day.
